Socrates and the Soul :: Bhagavad-gita Realizations

Human being must try to understand, “What I am?” This is called knowledge. And when he comes to the understanding aham brahmasmi, “I am spirit soul, oh, I am spirit soul…” Just like Socrates, he realized. When he was asked by the judge, “Mr. Socrates, how you want to be entombed?” he answered, “First of all, capture me; then you entomb me. You are seeing my body. You have no vision that I am soul.” This is right vision. A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

Know that which pervades the entire body is indestructible. No one is able to destroy the imperishable soul. Bhagavad-gita (2.17)

Civilization is static unless there is spiritual movement. The soul moves the body, and the living body moves the world. A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

What is it that, when present in a body, makes it living? — A soul. Socrates

As the embodied soul continually passes, in this body, from boyhood to youth to old age, the soul similarly passes into another body at death. The self-realized soul is not bewildered by such a change. Bhagavad-gita (2.13)
